​The Alibi

This song is by Steve Harley and appears on the album Yes You Can (1992) and on the live album Make Me Smile - Live On Tour (1994).

Flicking through her horoscope
She's entranced by the message
Moved like an innocent child
She's not content to sell her dream
In a picture-frame of despair
Looking for an alibi
She can depend on the rebel
To rise from the ashes and fly
Sensing that there's something wrong
She's in tune with the song of adventure
Rebel gives the alibi to a lonely girl
From high society
Victim of a color-packed magazine

Ringing out the chimes of dawn
Sensing that there's something wrong
So she's gonna fly, scheming for an alibi
Ringing out the chimes of dawn
Sensing that the chance has gone
So she's gonna fly, gotta run and hide
Gotta camouflage the story of the alibi



Tapping into real affection
Is hard for the lady
Lost on the innocent child
Looking for an alibi
She's immune to the moral conventions
Rebel gives the alibi to a lonely girl
From high society
Victim of a color-packed magazine

Ringing out the chimes of dawn
Sensing that there's something wrong
So she's gonna fly, scheming for an alibi
Ringing out the chimes of dawn
Sensing that the chance has gone
So she's gonna fly, gotta run and hide
Gotta camouflage the story of the alibi
